response showed a tremendous lack of presidential character. >> michelle is a former obama administration top aide, currently advising obama's re-election campaign on national security issues, served three years as undersecretary of defense for policy. michelle, good to see you. the new ad that is out now, you know, everybody has on the job training here. we know that president obama, when he first came into office didn't have a lot of foreign policy experiences. can you cut mitt romney some slack on that first visit, or do you think that really indicates a lack of understand ogt world stage? >> well, his initial performance abroad certainly did not inspire confidence. the truth is beyond that he hasn't been able to articulate a clear vision as to where he would take this country. he talks a lot about criticizing the president, criticizing his policies, but when you actually look at what he says, there's -- he seems to either embrace the president's plan or where he differentiates himself, really goes way, way from the mainstream and takes us into some pretty uncertain territory. i think
," and the honorable michael nutter, mayor of philadelphia and presidential surrogate in this tough campaign. gentlemen, thank you for joining us. always go to the elected official first. mr. mayor, what needs to be done right now to right this ship, to get obama back on a winning course? >> well, the president is on a winning course and as you laid out earlier, chris, with all the things that mitt romney either lied about or denied about, what we call that in philadelphia is just lying, denying, and alibiing. and if that's what you're going to spend your time doing and focus on style, then you'll have a pretty decent night. president obama is focused on substance. let me give you three quick numbers here, chris, which i think ultimately is what this election is all about. 31 straight months of job growth here in the united states of america. 5.1 million jobs created in the private sector. and unemployment at 7.8%, the lowest it's been since the president took the oath of office in january of 2009. things are moving in the right direction. this campaign is moving forward. we've got 30 days to go, and w

wasn't worthy of his time or attention in this presidential election. gregg: sean, let me go to you. earlier this month a cnn poll found governor romney leads president obama among likely independent voters by a substantial 14 points. 54%, look at this, to 40%. he also leads among independents in critical swing states like ohio and florida, and yet, "u.s. news & world report" points out there has been almost no mention of it in the media. i wonder why? >> well, i think what you are starting to see is that independents are largely part of the 60% of americans that think this country is off on the wrong track and right now that they are giving a stark contrast to what this election presents in terms of more government centered country or a free enterprise system that governor romney offers, one that rewards innovation and entrepreneurship. but the bigger thing that you also see in the numbers is, in eight of 12 battleground states the democrats really lost a lot of voter registration. when you look at battle ground states, in 2008, president obama won state like wisconsin by 14 points
that it could still swing back after the next debate. we have the vice-presidential debate coming up on thursday but the bigger one will be following week at hofstra university when mitt romney and president obama go head-to-head again. that is different kind of format. the town hall format. president and mitt romney will talk to individual voters asking questions, that may be a better format for the president. jon: but it does seem that states like ohio and nevada are getting tighter, and you know, with, well the election is four weeks from tomorrow. if that momentum holds for the romney team, it could really be a surprising turn around come election day? >> it certainly could. of course the romney campaign and republican national committee did a big turnout drive this past weekend. they have been doing a lot of that. we've seen it, we've seen it more from democrats. they have been exposing some of their organizational advantages all summer long. we're just now seeing how much the romney campaign is doing in some of these states. you're right, it absolutely could turn around. until we see romne
both president obama and governor romney. will a record number of americans be watching wednesday? is governor christie right, will this turn the presidential race upside down in byron? >> mitt romney at the south carolina primary, newt gingrich cleaned his clock. helhelp headedthey were headed o florida. romney felt he had his back to the wall, and he beat gingrich in both debates in florida. that's the spirit romney needs. he needs to do that well. >> greta: will he, steve hayes? reticent on this libya thing, he backed away a little bit. >> yeah. i think the tone of the romney campaign, particularly over the last week, has been a softer tone. they haven't wanted to be as confrontational with president obama. you have this line that mitt romney has been saying now throughout the entire, you know, election, president obama's a really nice guy, he's in over his head. i don't think that's the right attitude to take into the debate. i think he'll have to be aggressive. he'll have to be confrontational. doesn't mean he has to be nasty. there's a difference, but he has to be very aggre
requesting for my daughter. i asked the caller to take a message. i am from the obama campaign and i am calling to inquire how your daughter would be voting in the upcoming. my daughter is a practicing catholic and would not cast a vote for a presidential cand date who is disrespected the catholic faith. because of abortion and health and services . forces catholic to pay for abortion control and pills and sterilization. >> gretchen: did she say anything about mitt romney. she said i am a practicing catholic and i whole heartedly supporting obama. i said you are understanding of the pope's five nonnegotiablables that our bishop tells us. that abortion is an evil . she said president obama does not support abortion. i said did you not watch the national convention where planned parenthood was speaking about the support for abortion . she told me manned parenthood supported children's health and pregnancy care for women. i said are you kidding. planned parenthood is the largest provider of abortion. >> did they discuss mitt romney's faith and him being a mormon . >> yes, they did. well, h
mornings on msnbc. >>> as we get ready for thursday's vice presidential debate, mitt romney is riding high from his performance last week. among those who watched, a whooping 72% thought romney won that debate. compare that to 20% for president obama. 52 point margin is the largest in the poll's history. only bill clinton's 1992 town hall debate with george h.w. bush with ross perot came close. is romney's debate performance helping him win over voters on election day? in the three days before the debate, president obama led mitt romney by five points. in the three days after the debate, obama and romney were typed according to gallup. the seven-day tracking poll that includes three debate days and four post-debate days has the race at 50-45 obama. to help us sort it out let's welcome back nate. today he wrote about romney's bounce and how long it might last. nate, thank god we have you here. my head is spinning trying to sort through it. let me lay it out for everybody and you can interpret it. gat will you please released yesterday three days of polls after the debate and said we have a
, president obama is starting to get his edge, we're back in the place now, a surprising place to be this year. and the next couple of debates, the vice presidential debate next week, they will take on added significance, i really didn't think we would be here at this point in the campaign. >> and i'm going to say, just in bottom line, i said it just got really interesting this week. there was sort of a trend, and i think there were a lot of people out there putting predictions prior to this past week, and now look where we are. but eleanor, you said mitt romney was skilled in mixing facts with falsehoods, and did little last night to create a bond of trust with the people. his glib, even slick performance may score with the debate coaches, but the american people may not be similarly wowed. do you still feel that today? >> yes, the fact checkers are still all over mitt romneys, reversing some of his ideas, and his key proposals. so i think he is paying a price for not having formed a bond of trust with the american people earlier in this campaign. the fact that he -- convention was a missed o
